"Articles on women and film take stock of current issues in the industry." Media Report to Women v22, n1 (Wntr, 1994):5 (2 pages).
Movies directed by women earned a larger turn-over than those directed by men due realistic portrayals. Women in a woman-directed movie depict characters that serve as role models to the audience. Women belonging to the Asia-Pacific regions have been a source of fascination, contempt and fear to many Hollywood directors, leading to the enhancement of their images and exploitation.

Bad Girl
Women filmmakes are directing and producing hard-core videos to the female consumer. These women claim the right to pornography made by women for women and reject the censorship called for by feminists. Are they simply business-women out for their share of one of the most lucritive film markets, or avant-garde feminists and advocates of new sexual relationships? This documentary features selected film clips and interviews with feminist authors, filmmakers, anthropologists, sexologists and porn producers,directors and activists. 2001. 58 min. Video/C 8928

"Despite Oscar's '93 salute to women, actresses face the same old obstacles." (Eye on the Oscars: Actors)Variety v361, n8 (Jan 1, 1996):53 (2 pages).
Despite progress in hiring of women directors, and the growing list of female studio executives, film actresses still do not 'carry' or headline, major films. Early in their careers they observe that appearance, not talent, is the way to employment, usually in stereotypical roles.

"In the shadow of race: forging images of women in Bolivian film and video."Frontiers v15, n1 (Winter, 1994):123 (18 pages).
Bolivian women filmmakers are using motion pictures and videos to discuss the issues of national identity, ethnic culture, race and gender. The films aim to increase the awareness of Bolivian women on critical social issues such as women oppression, domestic violence and sexual harassment. They encourage women to attain control of their bodies and lives and to break from their traditional roles as powerless, voiceless and defenseless members of the society.

"The role of women on screen and behind the scenes in the television and film industries: review of a program of research." Journal of Communication Inquiry v23, n4 (Oct, 1999):355 (1 pages).
A study has been carried out of motion pictures released in 1997, 1992 and 1987, and of prime-time TV in 1997-1998 and 1995-1996. This study shows that women are Moffittrrepresented in the TV and motion picture industries, though there is a correlation between numbers of women employed behind the scenes and the extent to which women are shown in the screen. Female executive producers may hire more women writers who give stronger dialogue to women characters. There is a need for research on why women have been Moffittrrepresented in these industries.

"Pioneers." (early women film script writers) Films in Review v45, n11-2 (Nov-Dec, 1994):40 (14 pages).
Women script writers dominated the film scene in the early decades of the 20th century and writers such as June Mathis and Frances Marion were prominent figures of the industry. In the 1920s and 1930s, women participated a great deal in war and related situations which gave them confidence to enter into new fields such as films. Mathis started as a script-writer but later she became a production executive, the first person to hold such a position in the industry. Marion was also an important figure and she wrote scripts for nearly 130 films.

"Status of women weak on screen, behind scenes in the 1997-1998 prime time TV season." (study released by the Women in Film) Media Report to Women v27, n1 (Wntr, 1999):15 (2 pages).
The impact of women characters and women involved in the production of television programs during 1997-1998 was examined by the study conducted by San Diego State University professor Martha Lauzen from the grant provided by Women in Film. The study revealed that veteran women characters in programs such as 'Cybill' and 'Murphy Brown' were replaced by the younger generation in 'Ally McBeal' and 'Dharma and Greg.' Also, there was a decline in the number of women working in the prime time programs' production and direction.

The making of the film was not without many production problems of the screenplay. The film's storyline was modified to suit the screen narrative and remain within the Hays Code of movie censorship."

McHugh, K.
"Housekeeping in Hollywood: the case of Craig's wife." Screen (London, England) v. 35 (Summer 1994) p. 123-35
" Dorothy Arzner's film Craig's Wife is discussed as a source of information about women's changing domestic roles in the United States in the 1920s and 1930s. In the 1920s, there was a dramatic inflation of public interest in women's emotional role in the home at the same time that the importance ascribed to their actual labor waned. In cultural representations, the housewife's responsibilities changed from tangible domestic chores to intangible emotional tasks, represented in terms of her ability to love and nurture her husband and family. Craig's Wife skillfully uses the exemplary cleanliness of the female protagonist to indicate her sexual and emotional inadequacies as a wife, and to suggest that she is obsessed with her house. The film participates in the changing cultural discourse concerning marriage, sex, and romance by perpetuating an ethos wherein emotion, particularly for women, has assumed moral proportions, and romantic love has become the only honest incentive for marriage."

The Silent Feminists: America's First Women Directors[video]
Unbeknownst to many, women have been directing feature films since the silent era of the American film industry. Such directors as Lois Weber, Frances Marion, Dorothy Arzner, Kathlyn Williams and Alice Guy Blache were a significant presence in the early days of Hollywood. Utilizing film clips, rare photos and interviews with survivors of the era, this documentary pays fond tribute to these pioneers. 1993. 45 min.

"The article examines the heterosexual sets and homosexual scenes on the movie "Craig's Wife," directed by Dorothy Arzner. Craig's Wife was produced under Columbia Pictures in 1936. It is a domestic melodrama featuring Rosalind Russell as Harriet Craig. She played as a woman whose obsessive preoccupation with controlling the marital home eventually drives away her husband. The film is said to be important in making the career of William Haines. Arzner asked his help by doing the interior design of the set. The suggestion that homosexuality and heterosexuality have different relations to domesticity and publicity is not a new one, but the mixture of elements seen in the film invites inquiry because it has the possibility to break open several truths on sexuality and space."

Mary Pickford[videorecording]
Mary Pickford created a totally new way of acting that entranced audiences and left them spell-bound. She was also a creative producer and shrewd businessperson who played a pivotal role in shaping the first new media of the twentieth century. This powerful and moving production uses footage, stills, original audio interviews with Pickford and clips from her movies to tell a story that is full of joy and power, of loneliness and despair.

Mary Pickford: A Life on Film[videorecording]
By the age of seventeen, Mary Pickford had become the first actress to achieve international superstardom. By the time she was thirty, she was the first and only woman ever to own a major movie studio. With comedic and tragic talents and business acumen, Mary Pickford was the consummate movie star of the 20th century. This definitive documentary combines an abundance of previously unseen footage from Pickford's own archive with exceptional research to demonstrate why she and her films remain touchstones of film history.

"The writer reconsiders the motion picture Coquette on the occasion of the newly restored videocassette release by the Library of Congress' Motion Picture Conservation Center. Coquette raised such issues as unwanted pregnancy and suicide, which placed it among "women's" plays that marked the maturation of the American theater after the turn of the century. Actress Mary Pickford won an Oscar for Best Actress in 1929 for her role in this motion picture, which she intended to be a more radical departure from her previous silent films. The movie, which offered a view of the burgeoning film industry and Pickford's changing career, grossed over $1.3 million domestically, establishing it as one of the actress's most successful motion pictures. The production design of Coquette is discussed, and a filmography of Mary Pickford's films is provided." [Art Index]

"During the years 1917-20 Mary Pickford achieved international celebrity, appearing as a child in screen adaptations of several classic children's novels and tales. These "growing-girl" films at once eclipsed the popularity of her previous films, the majority of which had featured her in adult roles. At the zenith of her career, Pickford's little-girl parts established her indisputably as the highest paid, most recognized, most idolized, and most powerful female in the entertainment business. The writer focuses on The Poor Little Rich Girl, the first and possibly the most significant of Pickford's "growing-girl" films." [Art Index]

She won her second Oscar for her performance in "Jezebel" in which she used a more intimate voice, something that sounded less theatrical. A background on Davis' career is presented.

The article discusses the alleged lesbian relationship between actress Greta Garbo and Spanish-born aristocrat and screenwriter Mercedes de Acosta. The author examines correspondence between the two women. The heterocentric and homophobic conditions which create gaps in the correspondence are talked about. The author also examines physical evidence from the relationship, including a tracing of Garbo's bare feet, a lipstick kiss on a pair of socks, and stockings which belonged to Garbo's rival, actress Marlene Dietrich.
